Experts,

I have 2007 and went to the orb, Word Options, Proofing, Autocorrect Options, Auto Format as you Type, then in the Replace as you Type check box I made sure it was checked.  

It still does not format a hyperlink as a hyperlink.  (underlined and the blue text)

How can I do this?

Is it a Hyperlink, or just something that looks like it?

Use the Hyperlink button in the Links group on the Insert tab to create a Hyperlink.

Hello,

maybe the hyperlink style is set to a different font color and no underline?

Type in a web address or email address, like www.google.com 
Then put the cursor into the text that should be a hyperlink.
Click the little icon in the lower right hand corner of the Styles panel on the Home ribbon to show the Styles list
The Hyperlink style should be highlighted.
Click the drop-down arrow and select Modify

Check the settings for font color and make sure the Underline setting is selected (the U icon)

cheers, teylyn

I guess it was that it was not a web address.  It was a C: path

If it is a C: path then can I format those as I would a web address?

Yes,

select the path and copy it,  then click Insert > Hyperlink and paste the copied path into the Address field.
